Chiropractic / BEST / TRT / KST / MC2 /
Alphabet soup? What is with all these acronyms? For those familiar with various chiropractic technique, these are the few of them which are incorporated by yours truly in treating individuals, regardless of why they show up at my office. If you are not familiar with these techniques, a page is dedicated to each of them under the “Services” tab. However first; for those of you who equate the word chiropractic to back and neck pain and point to your backs and necks as soon as you find out someone is a chiropractor, I ask you; what would you do if you met a proctologist or a gynaecologist? The untold truth about chiropractic is that it is a healing science, an art based on a simple philosophy that our bodies are a self healing, self-regulating mechanisms as long as there is no interference in the nervous system. In other words; as long as the communication between the brain and the rest of the body and vice versa is not impeded, be it by physical, chemical or emotional disrupters. Using chiropractic only for back and neck pain is like using your smartphone only to make a phone call once a day only on a sunny day.
Suffering from pain may prompt you to visit your local chiropractor. In truth, the right chiropractor can help you with things like, head injuries, migraines, headaches, ADHD, Autism, learning disorders, insomnia, allergies, ear infections, chronic pain, fatigue, fibromyalgia, and other conditions that would cause an individual not to perform at their optimal. In short; being under chiropractic care helps your body to function better and work more efficiently. It allows you to do more of what brings joy to you, be it playing golf, running, working out, playing with your kids or grandkids, taking your dog for walks, or simply being able to perform better at your job. In short; being under chiropractic care is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your family.
In today’s world, you have a lot of different, and sometimes confusing options, from choosing a massage therapist, hair stylist, nail salon, dentist, exercise studio, to your local bank and favourite coffee shop can all be very confusing. My hope is that the same amount pickiness gets applied when you chose the person who is going to be your partner in your health and keep you moving.
So should everyone become a patient at my office? Definitely not, only if you like to make the most of your God-given body. When it comes to who you trust with your body and your health, I urge you to do the following;
- Make sure you know their background and techniques they use.
- Know your body and what it responds to.
- Be proactive and seek help sooner than later.
- Do your homework, I mean it in a very literal way.
Not every technique, practitioner or even setting, is going to work for everyone and when it does, it is nothing short of miraculous.
The reminders of how fleeting life is, are all around us. Take the richest, most influential people in the world, once faced with the tragedy of a disease or ill health for themselves or their loved ones, you will find most of them would do anything humanly possible and would give up thier entire earthly possessions to feel whole again. Sorry for the buzz kill, it is so true though. So take charge, take control of your health, be proactive and don’t let anyone dictate to you how to take care of your precious body.

Plus, more overall attention to my nutrition and neurological health. I have been eating better and exercising more which has really helped with my stress management.” -Eric
“Dr. Marina Zaré is a miracle worker. I started going to her for treatment about a year ago during a very stressful period in my life when I was in severe pain. She is the first chiropractor I have seen who really takes the time necessary to help you heal. I have the utmost confidence in her medical skills, and she is an easy person to get along with, she will work with you and your schedule and get to know you as a person, not just a patient. She diagnosed many issues that other less thorough doctors had overlooked. I am moving soon and I am so sad to leave her care!” -Meredith
